Get your glow on: 6 tips to make your skin and hair shine

Classic, Editor's Journal, Editorial, Fashion, Featured

(BPT) – Face it, winter is brutal for your skin and hair. Between the harsh, cold wind outside and the dry, overheated air inside, it’s hard to look your best all winter long. On top of that, everyone tends to overindulge in unhealthy food and drinks during the winter months. Fortunately, there are strategies you can use to enhance your looks while boosting your body’s natural ability to fight off the ill effects of winter.

Here are some tips to look your best – even when the weather does its worst.

Treat your skin with TLC

Gently cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin every day. Find products best suited for your skin type and be consistent about using them.

Thoroughly remove makeup before bed and use extra moisturizer overnight so you’ll wake up with a brighter, clearer complexion each morning.

Deep condition your hair

Just as you use a good moisturizer to help replenish and protect your skin every day, find hair conditioners or deep conditioning oils that can prevent your hair from drying out, frizzing or turning brittle. Look for products using natural ingredients, and that are designed for your hair type.

Hydrate well – from the inside out

If you want hair and skin that aren’t overly dried out, it’s not enough to just condition or moisturize them from the outside.

Staying well hydrated, by drinking at least eight glasses of water each day, will help your body maintain healthier, more beautiful skin and hair. You’ll also feel better, inside and out.

Lastly, avoid drinking too many beverages that are dehydrating – like tea and coffee, soda and alcoholic drinks.

Detox with a Green Smoothie Cleanse and Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse

Both cleanses developed by JJ Smith help to remove toxins from your system, resulting in brighter eyes, lusher hair and glowing, beautiful skin.

The Green Smoothie Cleanse is a 10-day detox made up of green leafy veggies, fruit and water. Green smoothies are filling and healthy, aiding the body to lose weight, increase energy, reduce cravings and improve digestion.

Raw ingredients are more nutritious and loaded with beneficial vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, anti-inflammatory compounds and phytonutrients.

The Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse involves consuming a six-day meal plan day alongside a daily dose of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar can contain strains of good bacteria and enzymes essential for breaking down foods and acetic acid for various health benefits.

The Cleanse can help rid your body of toxins, jump-start your weight loss and improve gut health and skin health.

For even better results, supplement the cleanses with Liver Focus, which contains scientifically validated ingredients to accelerate your results. You can mix the supplement directly into water or take it alongside the cleanses. This powerful supplement helps to accelerate fat burning in the body, gives you brighter eyes and glowing skin and has a significant impact on liver health and weight loss.

Boost your vitamin intake

Many vitamins help keep your skin, hair and nails healthy and beautiful: Vitamins A, B, Biotin (B7), C and K, plus fish oil. These vitamins are found in a variety of foods such as fruits and veggies (especially dark leafy greens), fish, nuts and seeds. To be sure you’re getting enough of all these vitamins, you can also take vitamin supplements.

Protect your skin and hair from the elements

If you spend time outdoors, especially doing winter sports, keep your skin and hair covered. Exposing them to harsh wind, cold temps and winter glare can be damaging. Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage – yes, even in the winter! Snow and ice reflect UV rays, making them even more damaging than being at the beach in the summer.

Taking care of your health and your beauty are really one and the same. Steps like these will make you feel good and look good, too.

Karl Largefeld’s Final Project

Culture, Design, Editor's Journal, Editorial, Fashion, Featured

In yet another convincing argument for the greatness of YouTube, a beautiful ‘Behind the Scenes’ video created by Jason Momoa (On the Roam) dropped an interesting detail about the signature pink Fendi suit boldly paired with Lisa Bonet’s pink and purple dress for the Oscars. The two looks for the award ceremony and the Vanity Fair after party might have been the last looks personally handled by the creative genius, Karl Largerfeld. While Jason’s Fendi scrunchie was the scene stealer of the moment, this detail creates a new level of appreciation for the customization and attention to detail in both of our celeb crushs’ looks. You have to take a look at the video!

Editor's Journal, Fashion, Featured

Olive + Piper, a fun and playful online jewelry boutique and collection, started from a dream and a few risky decisions. Founder Tania Yan grew up as a quiet and artistic young child, immersing herself in her studies, ballet, singing and piano. Like most young girls, Tania made her own beaded accessories, including jewelry and headbands, to express her own individual style. Taking a detour in college, Tania found herself studying cell biology and genetics, and it wasn’t until after graduation where she worked at a large ecommerce company that Tania was inspired to work with fashion jewelry. With a desire to start her own business, a personal fashion blog and a passion for designing, Olive + Piper was born.

imageOlive + Piper officially launched in October 2012, selling curated pieces made ethically in China. But Tania soon developed a bigger dream, a dream to design her own pieces. She began creating inspiration boards, sketching her designs and envisioning what they would look like.

Channel Your Inner ‘Mad Men’ Character with the Vivienne Pash Collection

Fashion, Featured

imageBy: Nina Monroy




It’s time to bring back the 60’s; fashion that is. We’re talking knee length dresses, skirts and shorts, midi belts and big collars. Vivienne Pash brings these styles back to women, leaving all that other 60’s “men are in charge” nonsense behind. Women are bigger, better and bolder today – just like her SS 16 collection.
As a Jamaican native, Pash grew up surrounded by delicate materials, draping everyone in their own way. Inspired by the different elements that come together to make a garment, Vivienne began sewing pieces for her life-sized doll. Taking motivation from this, she decided to begin creating her own personalized collection. After fashion school, New York became home for the creation of her line. “I brought my designs to life because they deserved to be seen,” Pash explained.
Right she was; her line has become a conversation starter. What sets Vivienne Pash apart from other designers is that she does not follow any trends and creates her own classic sets of garments for today’s fashion. Inspired by style icons like Twiggy and Tilda Swinton, the feel she exerts from her clothing is of a fashion risk-taker. Her designs are bold, simple and dynamic.
Meant to stand-out, the first official collection launched is heavy on black and white with some coral, grey and nude accents sprinkled around each corner. The dresses, skirts, tops and pantsuits are classy punk with a full-on retro vibe. Classic-cool, Breakfast at Tiffany’s anyone? Stepping out in the fan-favorite being the polka dot pantsuit with a midi tie belt would sure make a mother proud.
Cropped tops are seen everywhere, but not like this. Made with bold fabrics, each are simple and outlined perfectly along the shoulders and collar. The statement pieces will be sure to catch an eye along the way to work, lunch or a night out on the town. Major street style. With features on, we will be sure to see more of Vivienne Pash along the way.
The pieces can be worn individually or together, each making a statement on the sleek, classy, modern lady. Fitting each woman comfortably throughout her day, the clothing is made with cotton, silk, scuba, chiffon and jersey knit materials.
Pash inspires us to channel our inner ‘Mad Men’ self to take the more refined style of the 60’s American upper-class to our day-to-day wear. She also reminds us how much fun fashion can be. The prices for her collection range from $59.00-$800.00, it is available at

Trustworthy: Jorg Gray

Editor's Journal, Editorial, Fashion, Featured, Lifestyle


Jorg Gray is a watchmaker that has garnered recent attention for its Presidential Collection of watches which have become popular as the preferred time­piece of President Obama and his Secret Service detail. Upon receiving the JG6500­83, the President’s reason for choosing this watch were apparent. The JG­6500 is a simply gorgeous work of art with Japanese Chronograph movements, aviator styled embellishments, a sapphire crystal lens, stainless steel casing and an Italian crocodile leather strap. The Jorg Gray 6500 commands a stately presence while offering silent reassurance of it’s durability. The Rose Gold variant of the watch would make an excellent compliment to any suit at a state affair and stand firm under rugged conditions. As a reviewer, there is an obvious elephant in the room whenever a traditional watch is discussed. The Jorg Gray is obviously a luxury watch but some believe that we live in the era of the smart­watch. Consumers would not be faulted for comparing any watch to their favorite smart­watch brand. Smart­watches offer alerts and notifications. You can take calls, start cars, open hotel room doors and summon uber on smart­watches so why should consumers want a watch that “Only” tells the time? Some watch makers have expressed fear and trepidation at the comparison between smart­watches and “real watches”. The Jorg Gray 6500 has convinced me that watchmakers like Jorg Gray have very little to worry about. From the moment I was presented with the Jorg Gray, I instantly remembered why there is no comparison between smartwatches and “Real Watches”. I recall fellow reviewers gushing over the plain white box their Apple Watches arrived in but when I received my Bi­Fold case for the JG 6500, I remembered what truly elegant packaging was all about. The black case is accented with silver trim and it opens with a slight bit of resistance, communicating that it’s contents were meant to be guarded. Once opened, the case (it is inadequate to call it a box) reveals the watch in all of its glory.The watch is presented like a fine piece of jewelery and it immediately dawned on me that this watch was of an heirloom quality. The crocodile leather band is stunning and caught my eye immediately. When I held the watch for the first time, I was impressed by the perfectly balanced heft of the device. The watch face measures 41mm and it’s thickness is 13.6mm. The watch feels sturdy but not heavy. At first, the watch feels substantial but eventually it’s heft seems to evaporate. The device fades into the wrist becoming the unobtrusive presence that watches should be for serious consumers. The watch boasts many of the tricks demanded by modernity but it shines as an elegant, understated example of timeless craftsmanship. The Rose Gold­J6500­83 has a transparent undercarriage that offers its owner a peek into the watch’s internal engineering and the sight is admittedly glorious. In the two weeks I spent with the JG 6500­83, I have once again fallen in love with the beauty of a watch. A great watch does not draw attention to itself. It doesn’t buzz and vibrate with busy notifications or flash like a neon sign on the Las Vegas strip. In comparing smartwatches to this “real watch” it became apparent to me that all of those “features” in certain settings become gaudy, intrusive and in­elegant. A “Real Watch’s” beauty is reserved for those that the wearer brings in closely. It is a finer­detail or a punctuation point for a wardrobe. It is versatile and equally appropriate for meetings or social gatherings. For those I allowed to see the watch, it provokes an audible “Wow” but for those I choose to keep at bay, it never begs for attention. The essence of luxury is choice­­­a choice in where I can wear the device, a choice in how many outfits it can compliment and a choice in whom I allow into my personal space to enjoy it with me. The comparison between smart­watches and luxury watches is so inappropriate that it borders on the grotesque. The simple difference is in quality. It is in the way that one feels when this masculine, expertly crafted time piece serves as an accent that completes your presentation in personal and professional settings. Smartwatches have their place, in gyms and other functions but they cannot be compared to watches like the JG 6500, Presidential Timepiece. Why should consumers settle for smartwatches that appear reminiscent of “real watches” when they could simply obtain a “real watch”? I highly recommend the JG 6500­83 as a Worthy Purchase and at $895 it is an affordable luxury Worthy of the World’s Leader.

samsung-gear-s2-007-1500x1000                                 Did Samsung just pull a fast one on it’s most loyal customers? The company’s new Gear S2 smartwatch was heralded as sleek, thin, round and praised for an innovative bezel that makes navigating the Tizen operating system a joy. The tech world rejoiced as a worthy competitor to the Apple Watch was FINALLY coming to the market. The rotating bezel was so compelling that Yahoo’s Tech Reporter dubbed the Gear S2­”The First Smartwatch I’d Actually buy”. At $299 the Gear S2 ­bluetooth edition also seemed like a bargain when compared to an Apple Watch
that starts at 349 for it’s smallest version. Samsung loyalists rushed out to stores to purchase the device that Ars Technica described as “Svelt”. As the tech world gushed over the device,
few outlets reported that the Gear S2­ bluetooth edition came without a speaker. This lack of a speaker means that features that most consumers expect, like the ability to answer a phone
call, or listen to music or (unrelated to the speaker) create a voice reminder on the watch are absent on the Gear S2­ bluetooth edition. As Samsung boasted over the early sales of its first
decent smartwatch the company was less vocal about the fact that the 3G version of the device, which comes with it’s own cellular connection and is a dramatically more useful is ONLY $50
more! Samsung could have disclosed to it’s customers that most of the features they desire will be available in three weeks for pre­-order shortly after the initial sale of the Gear S2­ bluetooth

Samsung also kindly informed us that the most attractive version of the watch­, The Gear S2 Classic (which is absolutely beautiful) will only be available in the bluetooth version ­ at least for now! Samsung has abused its early adopters with one release after another of half baked smartwatches. After finally getting it right, the company continues to betray their trust by ripping them off for a quick fire sale for a device that no reasonable person will choose just to save 50 bucks and by unnecessarily hampering the most attractive version of its device. Samsung is a company that prides itself on relentless innovation but the only thing relentless about Samsung is its pursuit of profit at its customer’s expense. While Samsung may have adopted a new design language and is undeniably producing more beautiful products, the company has not learned that even more enduring than beautiful design is a genuine appreciation for consumers.

Turnberry Isle Spa The Singapore Massage

Culture, Editor's Journal, Fashion, Featured, Lifestyle, News, Worthy Places

15TrbyGlfPool020While our love for all things cultural has afforded us a fair amount of diverse experiences, the Singapore massage at Turnberry Isle Spa (19999 West Country Club Drive Aventura, Florida 33180) stands as a truly unique experience that we had not encountered until our visit at the Miami spa.

The signature massage draws on three cultural experiences that come together to expel fatigue and rid the body of daily stresses and tensions. The unique element of the signature massage is the progressive abdomen (Malaysian method) massage.

“It is the only massage that also massages and works on the stomach,” Turnberry massage therapist, Pillar, shared with the magazine. “It does exactly what the description says it does. It expels fatigue. This is a massage for a super busy person whose mind is always occupied with what else they need to be working on as they are working on something else. This massage will make you feel present,” She said followed by a warm smile.

For Talene Sanchez, an on-the-go office manager, the idea of expelling fatigue and finally having a massage that pays attention to an often overlooked area was all it took for her to request the massage.

“I carry my stress in my stomach,” Talene said. “When I get overwhelmed and overworked, I feel it in my stomach. So the Singapore massage stood out to me just for the abdomen massage. I enjoyed the entire experience. After the massage, I felt like I was floating. I was so refreshed and so relaxed.”

Back tensions are skillfully worked out using a Chinese massage method. Body heat is eliminated by stimulating the foot’s reflex zones using a Kansu bowl (Indian massage method). The entire experience lasts for 50 minutes and is extremely relaxing and calming.

The massage is priced at $149. To make a reservation call 305-933-6930. Visit the site.


Additional noteworthy elements.

15TrbyGlfPool021Turnberry Spa offers a number of features that elevate their services from a simple treatment to an experience. There is a 24 hour gym complete with a number fitness classes ranging from pilates to yoga and a juice bar equipped with Onjuice cold pressed juices, kale chips and coconut granola to name a few items.


A Worthy Swim Week

Culture, Design, Editor's Journal, Fashion, Featured, Lifestyle, Miami Life, Style

Swim Week has ended as quickly as it began leaving us with many memories of the shows that we attended. While it is almost impossible to escape the uniformity of trends and colors, we were happy to see that every designer that we saw found a clever way to stay on trend and unique to their own aesthetic. So here are a few of our observations paired with a few pictures of our favorite looks from our favorite shows.

1. Sinesia Karol

Location: The Setai Hotel

Day: Friday July 17th 8 p.m.

Possibly our favorite show. Sinesia brought us the best of summer with her gorgeous couture swim suits and resort wear. She embraced the warm purple and golds of the upcoming season but she also introduced light warm blues pairing beautiful textures with luxurious fabrics. We sat among her friends and family as even they whispered:

“I think that this is her best collection yet.”

Being that the designer is a prominent fixture in our current issue, we can’t help but admit that we love everything that the designer provides in all of her collections. True to her aesthetic, it was not about shocking her audience, which consisted of the who’s who, with loud colors and patterns. The poetry is always in the collection’s design. Her looks were effortless, elegant, enchanting and yet intricate. Her closing piece left us all in an editorial summer daze.  Like we could imagine having that suit on the digital pages of Worthy right now.


2. Keva J

Location: The Ritz-Carlton Hotel South Beach

Day: Saturday July 18th 2-4 p.m.


The upcoming season seems to be a sharp cry from last season, which opted for dark colors, textured swim suits with long sleeves. For the upcoming season we can look forward to vibrant colors we are happy that purple and gold stayed and that black will never depart. Keva J gave us all the colors of the upcoming season. Her unique signature was that her suits were layered and cut to perfection with perfectly placed muted gray and white swim pieces. We lost count of the gasps of excitement her audience accounted for. Did we mention that Eva Marcelle was in attendance and loved the pieces?


3. Liliana Montoya

Location: Funksion Tent

Day: Thursday: 6 p.m.

What we love about this designer is her ability to make every collection unique and signature to a specific season. What we saw last year was very different from what we saw this year. Down to the cut of her suits and her color choices. Her looks were the perfect mermaid oasis complete with Dash of Flash tattoos. Vibrant, intrinsic and dreamy are the words we would use to describe her collection.


4. Lila Nikole

Location: 1 Hotel South Beach

Day: Sunday  6 p.m.

Calling in one of our favorite worthy women of 2014, Lila Nikole offered up a show that hypnotically trendy and signature.  We loved the conscious choice to showcase one piece swim suits paired with playful, fashion forward sneakers from Kruzin footware.

5. Anita Rincon

Location:  Riviera Hotel South Beach

Day: Sunday 2-4 p.m.

This was the collection for the curvy and confident woman. Purples, dark greens and golds glistened in the summer haze by the pool at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach. The designer paired her looks with one of a kind accessories from Erica Mena’s accessory collection, HER. We loved every detail.
